Serendipity 3 in Georgetown has closed its doors. A tipster spotted the sign, pictured here, on the door of the New York import. A call to the eatery confirmed that the shutter is permanent.
There’s no word yet on why the home of the $1,000 “golden opulence” sundae locked its doors. Under Armour founder Kevin Plank recently bought the building that housed the sweets spot, as well as a luxurious home nearby. Rumors of the sports clothing store moving into Wisconsin Avenue and M Street, Northwest, have abounded since. We’ve reached out to the Under Armour team to find out more.
New ownership aside, Serendipity has had a bumpy ride in Washington since opening in the former Nathan’s space in 2011. Between a temporary closure due to health-code violations and a brawl between the owners, the restaurant’s tenure in Georgetown has been less than serendipitous. Stay tuned for more details.
